I use Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Manipulation as part of my treatment protocol for clients. I implement IASTM as an option to resolve pain and tightness in the body. The instruments make it easier to detect and treat fascial dysfunction, triggering an inflammatory healing response.
IASTM is another option to resolve pain and tightness in the body. This approach to fascia work reduces friction which allows for precision, sensitivity and depth.
IASTM instruments make it easier to detect and treat fascial dysfunction. They magnify the abnormalities (scars, restrictions and adhesions) in the fascia and make it easier to locate the area to treat. Using a tool focuses the force through an area smaller than your finger with less friction which allows a more efficient treatment. The goal is to trigger an inflammatory healing response. This will stimulate the production of new collagen and proper, functional, pain-free healing.
